AMD Project Quantum may never materialize

A month or two ago AMD showed off Project Quantum, a concept for a compact, watercooled high-end gaming system with dual Fiji GPUs. It seemed like a weird move for AMD to dedicate time and money to a project like this and now it appears Project Quantum may not materialize at all.

AMD's chief gaming scientist Richard Huddy explained in an interview that Project Quantum was created as a concept PC and hints that there are no deals in place to bring it to the market. Even if Project Quantum hits retail shelves, Huddy believes it would be a very small production number at best.
“I don’t know whether we have an OEM who is committed to building something like it,” said Richard Huddy in an interview with PCR. “We built it as a concept PC, so like concept cars it’s not usually practical to take it straight to market, that wouldn’t make a great deal of sense. But it’s not far from that.”


“I would think that if we have the right kind of conversations with some of these OEMs, then we might well turn it into a real product,” said Mr. Huddy. “In that case, it will probably be a very small number. Maybe only one or at most a handful of PC manufacturers who would bring that to market, potentially. It’s a custom piece, not a high volume piece, but it is a thing of beauty.”
